Take a tour of our beautiful Easter brunch tablescape decorated with simple and budget-friendly decor. Learn how to turn disposable plates and silverware and faux florals into expensive-looking and fancy Easter brunch table decorations!
Easter is almost here and if you’re hosting a meal then it’s time to start thinking about how to decorate and set your table!
I am a huge fan of decorating my tables nicely for family meals – whether its a holiday or not – and so I’ve accumulated a lot of different table decorating items over the years.
But, I know a lot of people don’t have that luxury, so I decided to set my Easter brunch table with things that aren’t expensive and don’t require having a lot of “staples” on hand for someone that wants to just set a pretty table once and then move on with life. 😉
We’re hosting a simple Easter brunch with our family this year and so I thought it would be fun to share our Easter tablescape with you, as well as some tips for making affordable table decor (like flowers, colorful plates and silverware) look stylish and fancy!
I hope this Easter brunch table setting ideas and my affordable styling tips help make your Easter meal an unforgettable one!
EASTER BRUNCH TABLESCAPE
& AFFORDABLE SETTING IDEAS
Let’s start with the tour and then I’ll get into the details regarding how I’ve styled this table with super affordable decor items. 🙂
Our Easter Table
I wanted to keep the center of the table relatively open so the food can sit on the table easily, so I chose to use my faux hydrangea arrangement that normally sits on the dining room table along with a few candles and some small faux floral arrangements.
The little pink glass jars were from the dollar spot at Target! And yes, I added water to the vases, even with faux flowers, because you don’t need to advertise that they’re fake! 😉
I’ve been slightly obsessed with blush glassware lately, so I did have the glasses and platter on-hand. You could easily use white or clear options for either of those.
This blue velvet runner is one of my favorite table runners in the whole world. I LOVE the soft texture and the color is the perfect blend of blue and grey! This particular one isn’t available anymore, but I love this pink version. 🙂
For our simple Easter table settings, I tied the napkins with some ribbon that matched the scalloped edge of the plates and tucked a faux floral stem from Dollar Tree into them for a touch of detail.
I always set wine glasses for a formal meal. If you aren’t serving alcohol, you could always serve sparkling apple cider in them instead!
I may actually swap them out for champagne flutes at this year’s Easter brunch so I can serve mimosas. We’ll see. 😉
If there’s one thing I could recommend you DO get to have on hand for formal meals, it’s a simple white tablecloth. There’s something about the bright blank slate that can help make any table setting feel elegant!
The grey linen napkins are a staple on my tables. If you don’t own linen napkins, you could always buy quality paper napkins instead.
These faux hydrangeas are seriously a gorgeous option for Easter table centerpieces.
Lighting candles on a table is another one of my favorite ways to add sophistication and coziness at the same time. Don’t feel like you have to have the tall candlesticks either – small candles add just as much style!
So what do you think of my simple Easter table decorations? Pretty, right? And SUPER easy and affordable.
Affordable Table Decor Ideas
Now, let’s talk about all the ways you can easily make your table more formal and decorate it in a fancy way without spending tons of money. 🙂
Here are my favorite ways to do this:
- Use high-quality disposable products. (This can be fun, colored items to fit your holiday theme!)
- Use high-quality faux florals. (These can be used over and over!)
- Don’t feel like you have to FILL the table with decor – do one simple centerpiece and a few other small decor items on the sides.
- Set both water and wine glasses.
- Use multiple linens (if you can) like a tablecloth, runner and cloth napkins.
Mask the fact that your floral stems are fake by putting water in their vases and making sure they’re really clean. Check out this article for more tips on arranging artificial flowers.
There are lots of ways to dress up affordable decor without it looking like a cheaply set table. Get creative!
I hope today’s tour and tips are helpful in setting your Easter brunch tablescape this year! I know I’m excited to bless my family with a nicely set table and a tasty meal. 🙂
